    Dear Paula, Thank you very much for having chosen Best of Switzerland Tours for your private walking tour through the Old Town of Zürich. We are sorry to hear that the tour did not meet your expectations. Within two hours, we aim to give our guests a good overview of central Zürich. Therefore, we try to include as many different places of interest as possible and simultaneously aim to maximize the historical information shared about each historical landmark. The tour started with a short walk up to the Lindenhof, a former Roman fort with a beautiful view of the Old Town and the Limmat river. You continued to the Fraumünster church, which you did not wish to enter, the Grossmünster church with its crypt, the Thermengasse with the remains of ancient Roman baths and through the so called Oberdorf with its picturesque guild houses to the opera house and Switzerland’s biggest square. The tour guide has focused primarily on the topic of the Reformation and the guilds in order to give you a most comprehensive overview possible of the city's history. Especially on our private tours, our guests are highly encouraged to share their wishes and interests with their guide and thus contribute to the success of the tour. We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful stay in Switzerland and hope to welcome you back on one of our tours on your next trip to Zürich. Best regards, Best of Switzerland Tours

    We toured across Europe for over a month and got several tours on Of all the tours, this private walking tour of Zurich was the best. Our tour guide, Antje, was the most professional guide in all of our 26 tours. She was very engaging, had full of insights, and she even went out of her way to recommend places to visit after the tour. We were a family with two seniors, and she happily adjusted to their pace, too. This is a well-designed AND well-executed tour. Kudos to Antje and the Best of Switzerland Tours. And thanks for giving us a memorable, fun time in Zurich!

    Trudy met us at our hotel right on time. We were only going to be in Zurich for a short time. So we took a 2 hour walking tour of the city. Trudy packed in as much as possible in that time frame without feeling rushed and even stayed a little longer to take us to where a restaurant we wanted to go to was located. She was very knowledgeable about the area and the history and I would highly recommend her. We very much enjoyed our short stay in Zurich thanks to Trudy.
